Community Cultural Wealth Series: Aspirational Capital

October 19 @ 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM

This conversation series is based on Dr. Tara Yosso’s Community Cultural Wealth (CCW) framework that identifies six forms of “cultural capital.” This framework disrupts our implicit bias by re-framing deficit-thinking into asset-based thinking and acknowledges how the collective resilience of historically-marginalized communities add tremendous value to our classrooms and school communities. The focus of this session will invite reflection on ASPIRATIONAL CAPITAL which refers to the ability to maintain hopes and dreams for the future, even in the face of real and perceived barriers. How can educators collectively recognize and cultivate ASPIRATIONAL CAPITAL with students in our learning spaces?

This workshop is hosted by Warren County EA, and all NJEA members are welcome.
